The serum C-reactive proteine in dysthyreosis

Laszlo Annamaria , Pascanu Ionela , Kolcsar Melinda , Gliga Camelia , Schiopu Alexandru

Introduction: The thyroid is a multifaced endocrine gland. By its hormones it has an effect on almost all organs of the body, metabolism and defence system too. The relationship between the thyroid hormones and the nonspecific defence system has been less studied.Aim: To study and prove whether the endogenous thyroxin (FT4) is involved in the nonspecific defence system of the organism. We followed the correlation between the FT4 and...

Thyroid-associated ophtalmopathy (TAO) in association with another disorders

Radu Cristina Corina Pop , Balazs Jozsef , Gliga Camelia , Nasalean Anisie , Pascanu Ionela , Kun Imre

Thyroid-associated ophtalmopathy (TAO) is an organ-specific autoimmune process that is strongly associated with thyroid dysfunction. Patients with TAO may present eyelid retraction, proptosis, chemosis, periorbital oedema and altered ocular motility with significant functional and cosmetic consequences. There is the possibility of coexistence of two or more autoimmune diseases affecting the eye due to the cross-reactivity to common antigens from the eye muscles.<p class="a...

Cytokine profile in Graves' ophthalmopathy patients

Zsuzsanna Reti , Zoltan Kun Imre , Camelia Gliga , Corina Pop Radu , Anisie Nasalean , Jozsef Balazs

Objective: The latest studies on Graves’ ophthalmopathy (GO) emphasize the importance of the orbital adipose tissue and fibroblasts in the pathogenesis of the disease by secreting proinflammatory cytokines. In vitro, these cytokines were proved to have a major role in the maintenance and progress of inflammation in the orbit. The aim of this study was to investigate serum cytokine levels in patients with GO.Materials and methods: Serum interl...

FSH secreting pituitary adenoma: a case report

Cioloca Mariana , Balazs Jozsef , Egyed Imre , Hanzely Zoltan , Lupsa Alexandru , Kun Imre , Nasalean Anisie , Gliga Camelia

Gonadotroph adenomas represent 40–50% of pituitary macroadenomas. Only a small subset of these tumors secrete sufficient hormone to elevate serum gonadotropin levels (functioning gonadotroph tumors).We are presenting the case of a 30-year-old male patient (E.R) having a characteristic symptomatology for the pituitary macroadenoma: headaches, impaired visual acuity and reduced visual field (based on ophthalmological examination). MRI (with gadolinium...

Iodine deficiency detected through urinary iodine excretion in school-children living in goiter prevalent regions of County Mures (2005–2006)

Kun I , Balazs J , Nasalean Anisie , Gliga Camelia , Detesan Gabriela , Simescu Mihaela , Coros Ligia , Ionescu Anca , Madaras Gabriela , Szanto Zsuzsanna , Macarie C

Our previous studies made between 1999–2003 demonstrated that County Mures is a moderate/mild iodine-deficient geogra-phical area. In 2002 a governmental decision was given for universal iodization of alimentary salt with increased iodine-content, realized during 2004. The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of in-creased iodine-supplementation at school children living in different iodine-deficient areas in County Mures, through urinary iodine excretion (UIE)....
